Bring the Gruffalo and other characters to life with our brand new Gruffalo Spotters trail and exciting augmented reality app.
Please note: Due to vandalism, our Gruffalo trail is missing 6 signs. The trail is still in place and is currently still working with the app. We are working to get replacements as soon as we can, and apologise for the inconvenience.
Download The Gruffalo Spotter app at home, then visit Wendover Woods. Along the trail look out for clues which lead to footprint marker posts - point the app at these and watch Mouse, Fox, Owl, Snake and the Gruffalo appear before your eyes!
Gruffalo trail dates and information
The trail is open from the 22nd February 2017. It is aimed at younger children, but the whole family can enjoy following clues and collecting evidence. Download the app before you visit and point it at the markers to bring the characters to life! You can find the start of the trail sign posted from the café, begins in the play park and it is about 2km in length.
Set out on your Gruffalo Spotting adventure with the Gruffalo Activity Kit! The kit contains an evidence collection bag, 5 fact and activity cards, stickers of the Gruffalo characters, a special magnifying glass, ruler and a pencil! Buy your activity pack from the café or GoApe cabin for just £3.
The trail and the app are free of charge, but we ask that visitors pay to park in the forest. For up to 2 hours the fare is just £1.70, 2-4 hours is £3.30, and over 4 hours is £6.10.
Parts of the trail are steep, and unsurfaced, so can get very muddy - take care! Visit www.forestry.gov.uk/gruffalo for more information about Gruffalo Spotters!
